Rock God || Selena Gomez & the Scene
Laney loves Liam (: Well, not just yet but she will.
It's been MONTHS and today I finally got inspired to write again! New chapter tomorrow too.
One second I was submerged in a very nice, deep sleep. The next I was attacked.
"LANEY, WAKE UP!" Dani had jumped on top of me, bruising my organs and almost causing me to have a stroke. Immediately I sat up and pushed her off to my left so that she would land on the other side of my queen sized bed and not the floor. Dani was light, super light, so I had no trouble doing that.
I tried to give her a look that said "I'm freakin' annoyed with you, GO" but I just couldn't. I always had a soft spot for my best friend.
Then, I smelled it. That horrible, awful stench that she knew I hated. "Danielle Snow. Have you been smoking?"
Her smile slowly died down and her brow furrowed.
"Dani, we've talked about this before. I thought you quit." I was really disappointed. And kindof annoyed. Dani started smoking when she was 14, before she met me. We met a little while after that. I'd always hated smoking, especially when my dad got sick because of it. When she was 16, I got her to quit and I really thought she had. Until now. She still hadn't tried to defend herself, which was unlike her. I hated acting like a mom, but I was her friend so right now, I had to. "Well, are you gonna say anything?"
She pursed her lips. Then she said, "Jake...he had some friends over and well. I guess I wanted to look cool in front of him. I asked one of the other girls for a cigarette."
I nodded, soaking in what she had just said. "Just one?"
"Yeah. I swear I won't do it again. It didn't even impress him anyway. He told me smoking wasn't his thing."
Again, I nodded and I felt the slightest pang of joy. At least she learned her lesson. "Ok, what is SO important that you have to attack me AND actually say my name and not one of my usual nicknames? I think I like it better when you call me cupcake."
She smiled so big that it was creepy. "Hmm, let's see," she paused for dramatic effect. "Last night, I clearly remember leaving our house to go to Jake's so you and Liam could get it on but...he's not here! So why is that?"
I groaned, fell back on my bed, and covered my face with a pillow. I hated that she thought I would just sleep with a boy after our first date. I really wasn't like that. Dani did it all the time, but not me. Never me.
"I know that you don't usually put yourself out there but I thought Liam would be an exception. He's PERFECT. Why WOULDN'T you do him?"
"Dani. I'm not going to change my morals just for one boy. That wouldn't be worth it. How about I just tell you everything that happened last night?"
"Ok! That'll suffice." She got comfy in my bed and gave me another creepy smile.
"Stop doing that. Your smile is giving me chills." She obeyed and I told her everything that happened, from the rain to the grocery shopping to what happened when he dropped me off.
I bit my lip. "The kiss was perfect. When he kissed me, the only thing I wanted was him. And that's why I didn't invite him inside."
"But he wanted you! SO bad! I mean, he even asked to come inside! Why didn't you let him?"
"I told you! I wanted him so badly too but I still wasn't willing to give myself up yet. If he really likes me, he won't just want sex. And when I saw his reaction after I turned him down, I truly believed that he didn't just wanna get in my pants."
Dani just stared at me. "Wow. You're a really good kid. I slept with Jake the first night I met him."
I raised my eyebrow. "You didn't sleep with him the night after Hope Fair. You went home with me, remember?"
"Ah, but that wasn't the first night I met him."
Then it made sense. "Oh, right." I looked at the clock. 10:37 AM. "I'm gonna call him," I told Dani reached over for my phone.
"You can't call him! You'll sound too eager!"
"Oh, hush. I think I can handle this myself." But before Dani could protest again, my phone rang. Sure enough, Liam Willwerth was calling me.
Dani's eyes got wide. "Is it--"
I silenced her and answered the call. "Hi." I tried to sound casual. Oh, the things girls do for boys.
"Morning, Lane." I felt my face get hot from hearing his voice. "How'd you sleep?"
"Absolutely great," I answered. "I hope you did too." While I said this, Dani ran to my desk and got out paper and a pen.
He chuckled. "Yeah, I definitely did. So I was thinking we'd hang out again today?"
Dani shook the now-written on paper. "Don't sound too available!" it said.
"I don't know, Liam. I'm pretty busy today. I've got a class on underwater basket weaving that I'm really in to," I joked.
"Great! Then we have all day! Meet me at the park. But the other park, not last night's park."
I laughed. It was amazing how easy and unstressed I felt around him. "I'll look around. Is noon ok?"
"Definitely. See you soon, Lane."
"Bye, Liam." After I hung up, I fell back on my bed and touched my lips, remembering last night's kiss. I threw my comforter off my legs and jumped out of bed to pick out my park attire. But of course my best friend had already gotten an outfit ready for me.
I took one look at the cute top and flowery skirt and went to my closet to take out a t-shirt and jeans.
